    Review of the Accessory kit from the BT3 FAQ

    What’s in the Accessory kit? Is it worth buying?
    • A miter slot table
    • A miter clamp
    • A router mounting and fence kit
    • A pair of plastic ZCTPs, uncut (these are zero clearance throat plates, discussed later in the FAQ)
    • A metal Dado throat plate
    • A dust collection bag
    • A pair of casters

    Some people like some of the first four items. It’s a very subjective thing. The last 3 are so-so – most people don’t like them. At special order prices for the individual pieces the kit is about half off when sold for $99. If free with the saw or cheap on eBay then it might be worthwhile.

    You may or may not appreciate the miter slot table (see discussion later in the FAQ).
    Some really like the miter clamp.
    The casters are hard to use.
    The bag is much poorer than using a shop vac, but it will catch dust spewing out the dust port so its better than nothing
    The router kit (see router discussion later in the FAQ) has a mickey-mouse fence attachment but the plate for mounting the router can save you work.
    The support rings for different sized router bits are hard to make yourself.
    The Dado throat plate is useful but fairly large opening to be general purpose.
    The ZCTP’s receive mixed reviews (see later discussion in the FAQ).

    There are do-it yourself options for many if not most of these. But its the convenience factor.

    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.
